"In our first meeting Joseph helped me to see the true causes of my problems, the causes that dwelled within me - my relationship to myself. He soon initiated me into the path of self-love, which has drastically altered all the important relationships of my life in such a positive way that I could have never imagined."

- Robert Lee Camp

The Path to Healthy Masculinity

A man can never move toward healthy masculinity until he fully realizes at the deepest levels that women have nothing to do with either his problems or his power.

For a man who did not establish that strong masculine identity in those critical early teen years, the movement to a strong, healthy masculine identity can be a life-long journey and includes the following:

  • Knowledge, that leads to self-awareness.
  • Self awareness, that leads to a man taking full responsibility for his life.
  • Taking responsibility, for his feelings, actions, and life-circumstances.
  • Self-love through self knowledge: there are many levels to this truth.
  • "Taking" our Fathers, our connection to the masculine field.
  • Resolution of systemic entanglements, freeing us from unconscious family dynamics.
  • Connection to other men: A man expresses his masculinity with women but he refreshes it with men.
  • Spiritual, the realization that the true source of power lies beyond us.

One important note: A delightful teacher & author, Arnold Patent, once said in a seminar,"If you want to do it the hard way, do it by yourself." Then he paused for minute, laughed a delightful laugh and added, "I'm just kidding, you can't do it by yourself!" And that's the truth, you can't do it by yourself. A man's power comes from his connection to the masculine field created by the men before him. As well, as is stated above, a man expresses his masculinity with women but he refreshes it with men.
